two about sharks. giancarlo thomae/fell into water near shark "...i saw him briefly, about 30 seconds before but i had no clue he was still there....""marine biologist giancarlo thomae was paddling his kayak near the cement ship on tuesday looking for sharks when he found one, getting a little closer then he had planned.giancarlo thomae "....my glasses fell off and i leaned over too far and off i went..."the scene was captured from a helicopter. thomae says thatdark shadow is a great white shark, about the same size as his10 foot kayack. chris gularte/specialized helicopter "....this year they seem to be about one or two feet longer, they're obviously larger, there are more people in the water with the nicer weather so it's kind ofinteresting..."thought to be attracked to the area because of abundnt food, sharks are hard to see from the surface but from 500 feet overhead, there is no mistaking them. thomae showed me the jawbone of a shark he thinks is about
5:05 pm
the same size as the one he was smimming with on tuesday. he does not think he was in any danger, however... giancarlo thomae "....these juvenile sharks that have been hanging around the ship are primarily fish eaters, in fact, they're teeth are designed for that, so they are not generally after big mammalian prey, so they are not going to come up and take a bite out of a boat that's as big as they are. but if you know there are sharks in the area i would not recommend you just go out and try to paddle with them..." (rob live) technically this was an unofficial shark sighting and it occurred several hndred yards from the beach so there apparently is no need to post any shark warning signs for the general public. live at seacliff state beach rob fladeboe ron 4 news

fortunately there were no serious injuries. lawrence karnow: we enjoyed plenty of clouds and drizzle near the coast this morning. the afternoon turned mostly sunny all the way to the coast. tonight will be mostly clear early before a return of patchy fog and coastal drizzle. a high wind watch has been posted for this friday and saturday. we could see some winds gusting over the mountains as high as 55 mph. on the satellite image you can see a few clouds off the coast and high pressure ready to build in over the next few days. as high pressure builds in we can expect offshore winds to bring clear skies and warmer weather to the bay area. highs tomorrow will be warmer with 70s and low 80s inland, 60s and 70s around the bay and 50s and 60s but becoming mostly sunny at the coast. the warming trend will continue on friday and saturday with plenty of sunshine to the coast but occasionally gusty winds too. mother's day should be a little cooler but nice. there is a slight chance of showers
